Hopefully, you are interested in cosplay and already know what cosplay is.
Cosplay is a new word, and comes from “costume play”. It means that dressing or acting in special costumes or fashion items of anime, manga, video games and so on. The person who likes cosplay is called a cosplayer.
Even if you are not interested in cosplay, looking around the booths may be fun for sightseeing.
At the booths, you can buy souvenirs like goods of Japanese anime, manga and so on.
